Spiral Dynamics Level One Training & Certification

Dallas, Texas April 17-19

This training will be apart of 6 days of Spiral Dynamics activities in Dallas Texas. Training will be follower by (graduate Level course) conference  on the future lead by many Spiral Dynamics experts. for more information and registration for this or both events please visit the event website here

Course Content and Objectives

We will track the history and emergence of Spiral Dynamics including the theoretical underpinnings of Clare W. Graves research methodology and the early applications of his seminal work. The Level 1 seminar will provide an experiential exploration of the eight value systems identified by the Spiral Dynamics bio-psycho-social model.  This is the first major paradigm of the 21st Century to offer insight in such areas as geopolitics, economics, religion, the arts, coaching and counseling, organizational design, education, health care, and other clearly identifiable manifestations of the social value systems existing in the world today.

In Level 1

We will see how these living systems emerge and evolve, their healthy and unhealthy expressions demonstrated experientially by music, cartoons, and films. Participants will gain insight into the nature of conflict, change, and healing. By the end of this seminar, participants will understand why conflicts and social ills still exist in hot spots around the world after years of effort to resolve them; and how to communicate with and align people, processes and purpose in order to facilitate healthy change and social evolution through natural design.

Each participant will receive manuals full of articles, charts of key Spiral Dynamics constructs and other information. Each will complete a full battery of research instruments, which may also be useful in their own profession.

Spiral Dynamics answers questions like:

* IF it is time for change, then FROM what TO what?
* WHY and HOW do values arise and spread?
* WHAT is the nature of change?
* HOW should who lead whom to do what for which people living where, and when?
* WHY do people respond to different ways of communicating?

When using Spiral Dynamics, you:

* Communicate with people in ways they understand best on their terms.
* Motivate people in ways that matter to them, at this time, in this place.
* Construct organizations that align the work to be done, the people who will be doing it, the management style that fits those people, and the technologies that apply naturally
* Design natural systems within a coherent framework.

Spiral Dynamics can be applied to:

* Understand why medicine cannot prevent the spread of HIV
* Understand why global crises, such as terrorism, exist and resist diplomacy,
* Integrate and align the efforts of stake-holders in complex global hot spots
* Integrate and align the efforts of stake-holders within organizations, and
* With regard to economic and social development issues.

Who should attend 

All participants will gain insight into creating natural design structures for organizations, development initiatives, and to facilitate change in individuals, organizations and societal contexts.

Organizational consultants, life coaches, and agents of change in the profit or non-profit sectors will find the insights and strategies delivered in this course of significant value and benefit in their profession. Individuals wishing to integrate their own strategies into a coherent framework for management purposes will find Spiral Dynamics to be scaffolding within which other management strategies can function very effectively.

University lecturers working or teaching in cross cultural contexts, planning to consult, or wishing to enrich their ability to communicate with a variety of stake-holders will gain significant insights into the closely held value systems that require specific communication strategies.

Managers at all levels of an organization, particularly Human Resource managers, will gain knowledge of how to align people within the organization with each other, as well as with departmental objectives and the overarching organizational vision and mission. They will better understand how to create a culture that reflects the organizations internal and external stakeholders.

The course will include both lecture and group work, demonstrate applications with real world examples, and provide experiential multimedia presentations – music, film, cartoons and power point slides – to facilitate the learning process.

This conference will be taking place at the newly renovated conference center at The Embassy Suites Hotel in Grapevine, Texas. It is a familiar place to many of us who have been to any of the annual Spiral Dynamics Confabs in the last 15 years. The event is a one-of-kind Summit on the future that is packed with 3 full days of events highlighting 3 major milestones in the continued evolution of Spiral Dynamics and the Gravesian Model.

2. The official US launch of the long awaited book Spiral Dynamics in Action: Humanity’s Master Code. Participants will be able to purchase singed copies of the book and other books written by other speakers at the event.

San Diego Integral’s Evening with an Author Series, Featuring: Said E. Dawlabani

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST) Encinitas, CA

Find out why best-selling author Deepak Chopra is calling Memenomics a model for evolutionary consciousness in the field of economics. In this evening lecture, author and cultural economist Said E. Dawlabani, discusses his whole-systems approach towards sustainable business practices and macroeconomic policies through the lens of Memetics. The audience will be introduced to the field of Value System Memes, its history and relationship to Integral theory. Attendees will learn how the reframing of past present and future economic philosophies through this prism can introduce evolutionary elements that naturally serve as whole-systems models for economic prosperity.

Said Elias Dawlabani is a cultural economist, author, theorist and consultant, specializing in Macromemetic systems and cultural change based on the value-systems approach. He is the author of the 2013 book MEMEnomics; The Next-Generation Economic System. Since 2003 he has worked closely with renowned global geopolitical advisor, Dr. Don E. Beck, one of the architects behind South Africa’s transition from Apartheid and co-author of Spiral Dynamics, the most authoritative theory on value systems.
